Just as in the garden a good preparation is essential, so too wif' personal internal growth. A little yearly clean=up of the weeds thas' accumulated, makin' sure ya have the tools ya need fer the year ahead ....I'se amazed every year how much "weeding" I need to do to make the mah pathways cleaner!
When I 'member that Lent is 40 days of preparation similar to the preparation work done fer makin' good thangs grow, why, I'se cheered by the prospect that some pretty flowers might soon sprout in me. Ain't sayin' thar' woan be a few thorns....jes' less weeds.
Hope all y'all is well.
